604 Make Her Mine of Her Accord
Clap, clap, clap!
The applause did not stop for a long time, and everyone's gazes remained on the couple on the dance floor.
Pei Ge only realized what she was doing when the applause became more thunderous.
"Ah!" she exclaimed, hastily lifting her head off Ji Ziming.Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.
This was when she saw his dark eyes fastened on her.
Pound, pound! Her heart began beating hard again.
Instinctively, she wanted to hide from this scorching stare.
Alas, before she could make her getaway, the man pressed her back into his arms again.
"Don't move." His cold and deep voice came from above her head.
"En…" She felt herself melt into his embrace, taking in his well-built chest and his smell.
What should she do? She appeared to care more for this annoying fellow now and seemed to grow more… reluctant to leave his side.
"What is it? Are you tired?" he asked, seeing her head droop.
She shook and then nodded at his question.
These contradicting actions of her only made him frown in confusion.
"I'm fine; just a little hungry." She lifted her head and smiled at him once she calmed herself down.
"…" He paused a little upon hearing her reply and then pursed his lips into a smile.
This stupid woman, all she knows is to eat.
"Fine; let's go eat, then," he said softly, his gaze indulgent.
Alas, having lowered her head due to shyness, she completely missed that look in his eyes.
The man then led her out of the dance floor by the hand under everyone's stares.
"Not bad, Little Chili! When did you learn to waltz like that? You danced really well!"
Mu Heng excitedly went up to chat with her once the two were near enough.
The other two men, on the other hand, did not walk over as enthusiastically he did.
However, instead of looking at Mu Heng, her eyes were on Fu Mingxuan.
"Senior?" Looking at the man who was standing next to Liao Gaofei, she finally confirmed that the 'Mingxuan' the two men were talking about earlier was the one she knew.
As such, her face froze a little.
This senior brother… liked her? Still… when did he start liking her considering that their time together back then was minimal?
"Ge Ge." The man's lips curled up into a warm smile at her stunned face.
When her attention was snatched by his childhood friend, a little upset, Ji Ziming furrowed his brows.
"You two know each other?"
"He! Ziming, what did I tell you? The capital isn't that big. Look; our Little Chili and Mingxuan happen to know each from way back! Tsk, tsk! That's really unexpected."
Before the two in question could reply, Mu Heng provided the man with an answer.
"Exactly. I didn't expect our dear friend to know your girlfriend, either," Liao Gaofei chimed in, shifting his eyes between Fu Mingxuan and the pair holding hands.
Hearing the two men's words, he looked at Fu Mingxuan in surprise.
He did not imagine his childhood friend to know this stupid woman next to him.
"En. I've known Ge Ge since long ago, but although it was way back, her height didn't seem to have changed much." Fu Mingxuan smiled teasingly upon seeing the man look in his direction.
Seeing how open and frank he was, she was left feeling a little confused.
Based on what the two men had said earlier, he should be fond of her; why was he acting so casually now, then?
"Sigh! Speaking of which, Mingxuan you even found a junior you've known from way back, but why hasn't your goddess appeared yet?" Liao Gaofei asked, his voice full of regret.
Huh?! Aye, aye, aye?!
What did this mean? Could it be that her senior brother's goddess was not her?
"Eh, Pei Ge, do you have an idea on who his goddess is?" Liao Gaofei redirected his question to her when he saw how shocked she looked and when he recalled that she was acquainted to his close friend in the past.
She hastily shook her head at his question.
"I don't; I don't. What goddess?"
Could it be that this goddess was not her?
"Oh, you don't know?" He pouted in disappointment, not bothering to answer her question.
However, as the person in question, Fu Mingxuan offered an explanation.
"It's a girl I used to like before. I didn't expect to see her here today, but she left without a goodbye again."
He smiled a little bleakly, his voice teeming with loneliness.
"It's fine. Since you saw her here today, you'll surely find her eventually." Mu Heng gave him a consoling pat on the shoulder upon seeing how sad he looked.
"En." He nodded and gave a frugal smile.
Hearing his reply and noting his disappointment, her face turned uncontrollably red.
Ahhh! Senior's goddess isn't me! How embarrassing! And here I thought that it's me!
Recalling how conflicted and troubled she was earlier, she felt incredibly embarrassed!
Where did she get the confidence that his goddess was her?! That was so embarrassing!
Thankfully, no one else knew of her earlier supposition.
"Why? You lost her again?" Ji Ziming frowned.
"En." Fu Mingxuan smiled at him, his gaze a little evasive.
"Do you need my help?" he asked, cocking his brow a little.
"It's fine. I'll find her myself and…" Fu Mingxuan's eyes narrowed as his lips curled into a cold smile. "Make her mine of her own accord."
